The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) does not want to leave any stone unturned to win the assembly elections in 2021 in West Bengal. The party is planning to contest this election in a very aggressive manner. For this, Home Minister Amit Shah himself has taken charge. Amit Shah is working with the intention of winning 200 of the 294 assembly seats in West Bengal.
A top BJP official aware of the matter said that 294 BJP leaders from Delhi or other parts of the country are about to reach West Bengal and will work with the local unit. He will be a part of the 45-member team to be formed for each constituency. The existing district committees will assist these teams.

The BJP is trying to oust the Trinamool Congress (TMC) from power in West Bengal, where the Mamata Banerjee-led party came to power in 2011, ending the 34-year rule of the Left. In 2016, Mamta won again. It is reported that Amit Shah and BJP President JP Nadda will visit Bengal every month and he will stay for at least two days during each visit.
A state BJP official said, “Even the ruling Trinamool Congress (TMC) cannot imagine how the BJP is going to contest this election.” Amit Shah, during his recent visit to Kolkata, told us that last year when we won 18 out of 42 Lok Sabha seats, the machinery was down. We will work in a big way in this election. “
A large section of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) officials will also visit Bengal to bring the BJP back to power in West Bengal. The BJP leader said, ‘Our RSS officials will work closely with local leaders. Such officers are being selected. There will be separate teams for every 42 Lok Sabha seats.

Kolkata-based political science professor and current affairs analyst Udayan Bandopadhyay said, “The BJP had set up a similar machinery to defeat Akhilesh Yadav and his allies in Uttar Pradesh. But the big difference is that BJP had experience of ruling UP. It has never ruled Bengal and the results of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections show that it was ahead of TMC in over 125 assembly segments. This became possible because voters who are not committed to either party voted for the BJP. These voters comprise the largest share of the vote bank. Each party has a bank of committed voters. The BJP will have to present itself as an alternative to non-committed voters, work on a plan to win their trust in 2021.
